TLC Care Center

Respiratory Therapy

Respiratory Therapy

TLC Care Center has become the destination of choice for patients needing pulmonary care and rehabilitation.

For many pulmonary patients, each breath is an effort. In some cases, the simple task of eating, speaking or sleeping can be extremely problematic. At TLC Care Center, our healthcare professionals understand the difficulties of pulmonary disease and the significance of new accomplishments. We work with each patient, to create a tailored individual care plan

Ventilator Care

Ventilators assist our residents in breathing with ease and fill a necessary gap between intensive care and a patient’s home.

Our facility is well equipped to accommodate residents in need of short or long-term ventilator support. The staff is specially trained to care for ventilated residents and we work in collaboration with our pulmonary specialists to develop a specific care plan. In addition to our skilled nursing, we offer a licensed respiratory care professional and comprehensive speech, physical and occupational therapists.

Our goal is to achieve the best-case scenario, having residents live without ventilation assistance. While at TLC, rest assured that our ventilator-dependent residents will enjoy an array of activities including social, religious, and on-site beauty salon and barber services.

Our Unique Approach Includes:

TLC Care Center recognizes the importance of assisting patients back to their homes, communities, and places of work by helping families navigate through disability benefits systems and providing support to patients and families as they go through this often difficult and confusing process.

Medical Management:

Our healthcare professionals work closely with the physician’s medical treatment team. Each patient has an individualized care plan developed to promote the highest level of functioning for that patient.

Physical and Occupational Therapy:

Our state-of-the-art care facility includes access to occupational professionals and a therapy room equipped to help patients practice carrying on daily living activities. Our therapy room includes practice stairs, railings and a working kitchen.

Speech Therapy:

When pulmonary disease affects the ability to speak, it can be extremely frustrating for the patient. Our speech therapy improves the ability to communicate and facilitates an independent lifestyle.

Education:

Patients, families and their caregivers are given specific instruction for individuals with regard to their medication, exercise regimes, breathing and pacing techniques.

Maintenance Program:

After discharge, we develop a customized plan of continued exercises, techniques and strategies. We help patients continue their progress at home to become more active and confident.
